We are reopening on the 4th July!

The past few months has been a very difficult time in hospitality. We were delighted however, to have been given the opportunity to support the effort against Corona Virus by opening up as a kind of convalescent home to take low-risk-patients from Dorset’s hospitals. Thankfully, with Covid cases in Dorset so low, the project has ended and the hotel has closed once again.

In the meantime, we thought you might like to see our reaction to the news that we could open…

“A hidden gem”

The Grange at Oborne is a charming country house hotel, set within the rolling hills of West Dorset, just one mile from the charming town of Sherborne and seven miles from Yeovil. The hotel is owned by Karenza and Ken Mathews and managed by their daughter Jennifer Fletcher and her husband Jonathan.

With eighteen bedrooms, an award winning restaurant, a private dining room and a beautiful function room overlooking the gardens, The Grange really is the perfect setting for that special occasion. The hotel is family-owned and run, meaning that each guest receives that personal touch.
